    Ipmba

    Hey guys. My question is about the International Police Mountain Bike Association and their training programs. I should have the opportunity some time in the near future to take one of their training courses for free and I was wondering if anyone else has been through one and how your experience was. Thanks

    My bike patorl course was taught by an IPMBA certified instructor. It was a lot of fun and a LOT harder than you could imagine. See if you can go through the shooting course. Well worth it.

    I never officially took the shooting course, but when I assisted with one of the IPMBA classes, we goofed off at night and did some of the shooting classes. I was the only assistant not IPMBA certified, b/c my dept wouldn't send me to the cert class...assholes!! lol

    I took the IPMBA course and was a member for several years. Good course, take it if you get a chance. All of our bike officers must be IPMBA certified.

    I did it years ago. Had a blast and was surprised what you can do on a mountain bike. Very good skill to have.

    Now what I did hate is how I was doing bike patrol and it was like 20 degrees out with snow on the ground. Not good.

    Now I don't ride because I need to take the refresher course.

    Lots of good times though.
